INTERVIEW: Emotional Ty

Hi Emotional Ty, welcome to VENTS! How have you been?

Hi! Thank you very much. Things have been good despite the strange times we’re currently in. Hope everybody who reads this are safe and sound.

Can you talk to us more about Roses And Aliens?

This record is very dear to me as it was made during a few months of heavy artistic development as well as on a personal level, which was needed to get to the point where I’m at today. The title came about in the very beginning of the Emotional Ty project, but I kept it to myself until the right tracks came along to carry it. 

What inspired you when producing the EP?

The feeling of following my purpose was probably the biggest source of inspiration, and still is. It kind of stuck after this record. During the recording I moved parts of the setup to the kitchen, as photographer Rubén Dario Kleimeer stayed over in the studio space when he was in town for a few days. It was very cozy working late nights in there and a needed change of scenery.

How was the recording and writing process?

For the first 3 tracks I used my dear Sennheiser HD-650’s for monitoring when tracking, made beats, some basslines and weird sounds on the Analog Rytm and melodies on the MIDI keys. I have a very methodic way of working, doing one sound at a time and hardly ever jam out and record stuff on the fly, so it was a cool and calm process as usual. The last track was made in the same way but a couple of months later and with a few other sound sources and a whole lot of emotions in need of an outlet. 

Can you tell us about EMTY?

EMTY was created to be able to release anything I want, nothing more and nothing less. Just a quick way to get new music out there.

What role does Sweden play in your music?

The weather is very influencial on my creative mood. All seasons bring something that I love, be it snow, rain, sun or wind, all of which rub off on the creativity. Besides the climate Sweden exports a lot of music and always has, so I guess it’s kind of cool to be a part of that. 

Are there any artists that have influenced you?

I listen to all kinds of music so there’s one band or person for every genre and way too many names to drop. But yes, there are indeed artists who have influenced me very much.  

Can you tell us more about your side project Ascorbite?

This was a period where I think I just wanted to lash out and it was a proper learning experience for sure with all that it brought. It has been a good run but after a lot of contemplation and soul searching I came to the conclusion that I’m not there anymore. I always come back to melodic stuff for a reason and that’s where I need to be for myself to feel good and real.

What else is happening next in Emotional Ty’s world?

More music is happening, as I’ve been collabing with some friends here in Malmö like Defusion and Somoah from local crew Pommes 94, so expect some of that to see the light of day shortly. Planning new releases and been super busy making new tracks that I hope will find a suitable home in the near future. I’m having so much fun in the studio, so that’s where I’m at right now and we’ll see what the future holds.
